    I found this to be very enlightening. Thank you for the opportunity to respond.

    My first thought is from Shunryo Suzuki , who said : "not one not two", meaning I am not one and not two. That sounds much like I am nothing. I believe I am more connected than disconnected to everyone and everything but the connection is not perfect. I think only nothing is perfect. This implies to me that everything is perfect as it is. Being no one going, nowhere is the same as being everyone, going everywhere. Some of my friends see me as pushy and aggressive and that probably is true. If I were closer to nothing, I expect I would be less pushy and aggressive.  Less pushy and less aggressive would make me kinder and I can't think of anything more important than that. Warm and kind regards to everyone. Is the universe speaking as nonone says the things?

    I love Smita's and mailman's comments. Warma and kind regards to everyone/the unity of no separate one.
